NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – Boeing on Wednesday announced personnel changes at their plant in North Charleston.
In a press release, Boeing’s spokesperson Libba Holland announced David Carbon, who has served as vice president of 787 Operations at Boeing’s North Charleston plant since 2016, would be returning to Australia to care for his family.
David’s departure comes after successfully completing the rate increase to 14 787s per month and at a time when the 787 manufacturing operations are the healthiest they’ve ever been,” Holland said in the release.
She went on to say, “David has worked tirelessly the past three years to improve our production system and help us achieve the highest widebody production rate in history. We are grateful for David’s many contributions to Boeing and the 787 program. We wish David the very best.”
A replacement will be announced later. For now, Darrel Larson will lead 787 Operations.
